SURF – Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowships
The Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) program is one of many programs administered through the UNC Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR) and designed to enhance the educational experience of UNC undergraduates by engaging them in research opportunities. Each summer, PPMH sponsors two students who are working on precision-medicine related projects.
